Castles Made of Sand

 Childhood is sunny

days in a sandpit

building castles

with upturned buckets

tamped with a spade

But where is childhood if there is

no sand only concrete

no sun only darkness

Where is childhood when a castle

is a cellar

and you are the child

moulded into a rigid shape
